Great place, good food. One should try the coffee. They make it just right. Sitting outside in the evening can be a lot of fun. Do not be scared if you find a dog on the patio. It does not bite, even if it barks, it is barking at other dogs.

We chose this restaurant because it had free wifi....But after having the food here we were content.we really relished the food.we had ordered pork ribs and chilli pork which was absolutely finger licking.The decor of the place was also very jazzy and upbeat.Overall a must to do if in Thimpu.

If you're missing continental/american greasy food, this is your place. They do keep some Bhutanese food as well but not a very wide range. Service was prompt and place, hygienic.

The location and ambience is excellent. We ordered Yak-burgers which were Nu480 a piece . Other items are less expensive.The burgers were good and getting to taste yak's meat was a novelty . The crowd is young and touristy. The staff is OK. There is a separate smoking zone. You can sit outdoors too, but the cold kept us indoors.... More

On the main streets of Thimpu, this place not offered a good coffee, but great place to hang out. We ordered few snacks and side order and finger food, though it was as per western standards, though we were also not expecting it to be. But at the same time the food was good. Try the Bhutanese chilly paste at... More

The place has a good American burger-bar menu, and more importantly, a very good view of the thoroughfare. It is right opposite a football stadium as well. You may sit either on the cozy inside or the cool outside.
